SCFocus Origin 600i Questions & Answers

Is 600i overpriced?

Yes. The 600i is a luxurious ship for players who have more UEC than sense. It´s also worth noting that the 600i concept price is the lowest price this ship will be purchasable for. This means that it is expected to become much higher in price in the game. This is a ship for those who specifically want pretty and comfortable over anything else.

Can the 600i be outfitted for other roles?

The 600i is currently being offered with the Explorer module or Touring module. While it has not been confirmed that there will be more modules, the official Q & A says it is possible more modules could become available in the future.

Is the 600i a good ship at making money?

No. Players seeking to maximize their income in the Star Citizen game should look elsewhere. The 600i is not supposed to be an affordable ship to operate. It is a luxurious ship which means even the slightest scratch could be expensive to fix. Given the ship sacrifices operational efficiency for comfortable living quarters it is not likely that this ship will run at anything other than great expense. It certainly won’t be a profitable ship to operate.

However, it’s worth mentioning that there is at least one profession that could be possible with the 600i: Super Luxury transport. There could be select jobs that require a lot of reputation that might be available in the game such as bringing VIP NPCs to and from locations discretely and in comfort.

Is the 600i a limited ship?

Yes. The 600i, much like other luxury ships such as the 890 Jump or the Constellation Phoenix, is a limited ship.
